These cheery Snapdragons have actually volunteered in my baskets for 2 years running.
A large Cyclamen hederifolium bulb somehow ended up over near my woods-
Some of the Agastaches are valiantly trying a few last blooms-
Pink Panda strawberries are blooming here and there-
And the very common and reliable Sedum 'Autumn Joy' are putting on a show,
A similar color in my favorite rose, Zepherine Drouhin, first and last rose to bloom in my garden-
And another pink flower, Spirea japonica 'Little Princess, contrasting with leaves that have their fall flame colors on.
Similar colors in their everyday foliage, Berberis thunbergii 'Rosy Glow', contrasting with Variegated Silverberry, which has little out of focus flower buds coming on, soon to open to waft a delightful fragrance across the yard.
Meanwhile over in the vegetable garden, colorful blooms on my Cardoon plant-
One of those mysterious disappearances, my usual fall asters are nowhere to be seen.... Yours are heart wrenchingly beautiful, Carol. Sigh. And the variegated foliage on your toad lilies is so crisp and lovely.
Happy Bloom Day, Hannah
